Friday 16 October 2009

It was Friday, under the sign of Libra (see planets position on October 16, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Down by Jay Sean. Not Since You, directed by Jeff Stephenson, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while An Echo In The Bone by Diana Gabaldon was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Fear Clinic. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Ben 10 Alien Force: Vilgax Attacks or Spider-Man: Toxic City.
